Queenstown Photowalk - THE MOVIE! ( #qtphotowalk )

Exactly one week ago I joined 30 photographers for the inaugural #Photowalk in #Queenstown, New Zealand! Christmas marks the height of Summer down here in New Zealand and the weather didn't disappoint, with great conditions as we circled the bay into the evening, capturing some classic Kiwi views and a lovely sunset. I've made a short film about the walk and to also showcase some of the great photos taken during the evening. So if you were there, wanted to be there, or simply wondered what happens at a photowalk, then check out my Queenstown Photowalk video at the Camera Club link below!

Featuring +Todd Sisson , +Jason Law , +Scott Kennedy , +Sophie Kennedy , +Lucy Jackson , +Eden Brackstone , +Codie Westphall , +Brett Black , +Lisa Ng , +Stefan Haworth , +Ruth Joiner

So a question to our friends across the Pacific, +Trey Ratcliff , +Thomas Hawk , +Lotus Carroll , +Karen Hutton , was this similar to how it goes down at one of your walks, stateside?

You'll have no problem, it's a very friendly country. The locals are friendly and that rubs off on the folk who choose to live here too.

Lake Wakatipu Sunset

This is my 'traditional' shot from Sunday's photowalk in Queenstown. (#qtphotowalk) - organised by +Gordon Laing

It is my much-maligned 'location hog' shot +Jason Law :-)

I would never normally share such a complex shot when it is in it's 'infancy' - but time is not on my side as I am out of here for Christmas in a couple of days.

This is a great example of how the digital workflow proffers options that are not readily available to film lovers (or Rockwellites as I call them - in 'honour' of Ken Rockwell's strange 'Real Raw' philosophy)*

Due to the strong side-lighting angles, I had to shoot the foreground with my hand covering much of the sky and mountains to kill the insane flare appearing in the bottom left.

The lake and waves are a 2 shot blend taking the best from each while the sky and mountains are a further 3 frames blended.

Strictly speaking it is HDR.

The image is really at precis stage - I find I need to walk away from shots like this for a few days to get some perspective and find the things that bug me - but it is good enough to share with you lot!

Enjoy!

Cheers - Todd

Thanks to the Global Financial Crisis, the New Zealand Government has been forced to 'privatize' huge tracts of the New Zealand landscape.

The entire of Queenstown is now owned in a joint venture between Sir +Peter Jackson's Wingnut Films and Warner Bros.

It is being used as a filmset / Hobbit breeding sanctuary.

*before you start yelling at me about the film thing - I shot transparency for 10 years - and personally, I wouldn't have been able to make this shot without a drum scanner a PC and heaps of luck. Maybe you can - good for you.

#qtphotowalk - I went on a great photo walk the other day organized by +Gordon Laing here in Queenstown. I decided to focus on two things as I was walking around - texture and people. This first selection of images are some of my textural favourites.

Google has already made it pretty clear that they're going to identify to us what you're calling "sewing circle" search results, so you can tell what is content that they think you're after, as opposed to content that just has a high organic ranking. Secondly, you can always sign out of Google+ and search without them providing user-centred search results. Lastly, the type of search people want will obviously vary form person to person - some will want super-sewing-circle, some will want a mix, and some will want nothing to do with sewing circles - the last one, however, potentially harks back to where search was before Google came on the scene, and that was a pretty crappy place to be. IMO.

Borrowed and VERY tempted, sweeeet lens! Yep all handheld with a two handle steady(ish) cam rig. Nope, didn't use the GoPro in the end. And all natural lighting. In post production I desaturated things quite a bit to make things look a bit more filmic
